It's kind of hard not to post negative to your statements, you simply put it out there but I will try my best not to.
You may have installed every version of Windows, so have I , so has my son, I don't feel it's that large a task to be honest. I chose not to be admin , don't care for it. These are not expert papers from either you or I, simply bragging rights, well not even with so many that do this. I write HTML, going into programming, do graphics work as well, so what? So do a million others. My point is you are making statements and judgements on FUD, not technical. And I also know they have been working on software that will self repair sofware issues to the point there is no need for Admins save for hardware changes, what? Once every few months give or take. Which brings me to my next point...
You claim you would rather be moving forward, lol. Well the problem I see is this. If Vista has issues or future software, if techs are becoming locked out, who is going to fix them? Ohhhh, Microsoft would make a bundle wouldn't they? Or I hope people get used to re-installing A LOT. As far as Bob goes, you may not agree, yes Bob can be impolite, yes he makes short statements that leave people scratching their heads, yes he can even irritate you, but he knows what he's talking about and that's something i'll never dispute. If you've been here that long, you must know this.
"Sorry Bob, lol, no offense meant"
If in the future MS locks out vendors, I hope you trust MS security enough to not worry about it.
Linux has future plans to become what i've been wondering about for years, an OS for many who want more user friendly and affordable and compatable. I don't know how it will work, or IF it will, but it's a shot.
Vist and future versions i'm sure, are becoming a fire danger. Why do I say this? It's sort of like a home, you can seal every door, every window, board them all up,put chains on everything, now your house is safe right? If there is a fire, good luck getting out. Same for an OS, begin locking everyone out, fine, until the very same hacks decide to find a hole and take down the whole system which WE NO LONGER HAVE ACCESS TO.
So I think this is where the FUD belongs, not to those who are worried that one day their livelyhood may be at stake. It's the FUD you claim that puts the locks on the OS's, not from techs. Blame hackers and other malicious beings who exploit our systems, they caused this FUD , not people like me.
